2016 1 oz Canadian Silver Cougar Predator Series Coin The Royal Canadian Mint has a reputation for producing popular silver and gold bullion coin series that feature designs inspired by the vast wilderness of Canada. In the latest silver bullion program from the RCM, the Predator Series, a popular figure debuts on the first release. Now is your chance to capture the deadly cougar on the 2016 1 oz Canadian Silver Predator Cougar Coin from Dave&Co.

Coin Highlights:

  • Individual coins ship in plastic flips, multiples of 10 – 25 ship in tubes, and multiples of 500 ship in monster boxes.
  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 pure silver.
  • Face value of $5 (CAD) is fully backed by the government of Canada.
  • Beautiful image of a cougar attacking its prey on the reverse.
  • Queen Elizabeth IIs effigy on the obverse.

Investors are accustomed to seeing animals from the Canadian wilderness on coins from the Royal Canadian Mint, especially the cougar. The largest wild cat in Canada has featured on Canadian Maple Leaf coins as a privy mark and even appeared on its own coin in the Canadian Wildlife Series.

These new .9999 pure silver coins from RCM depict the cougar in a manner never-before-seen on a Canadian coin. Cougars are elusive and silent hunters, pouncing on their prey before the unsuspecting creature knows what is happening. The cougar is the worlds fourth largest cat, and is known in the Western Hemisphere by other names such as the mountain lion and puma.

On the obverse face of these all-new coins youll find the familiar right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, as created by Susanna Blunt in 2003. Her Majestys effigy is surrounded by engravings that include her name, the phrase D.G. Regina.

The reverse face of the 2016 1 oz Canadian Silver Predator Cougar Coin features one of the elusive cats as it leaps down from a rockface onto its unsuspecting prey below. Engravings include the year of issue and nation of issue above, as well as the face value of the coin below.

The Royal Canadian Mint is releasing a new series of four silver coins known as the Predator Series, and the Cougar coin is the first release. You can expect these coins to sell out fast and generate immense interest, just as other first-release coins from RCM have done in the past.
